Sun Bronzed Greek Gods EP

(Astralwerks)

Sounds Like: Irreverent weridos from Worcester, MA making synthy, upbeat quirk rock—here’s a reissue of their debut EP cleaned up nicely for mass consumption.

Free Association: Lead singer loves his cat, Weezy, blunts and sarcasm.

For Fans Of: Girls x Destroyer, Passion Pit sans God and on drugs.

Radiohead

The King of Limbs

(Self-released)

Sounds Like: Whoa, didn’t see this one comin’! The Brits drop their eighth album and it’s a short little number full of programmed percussion and chill vibes.

Free Association: “Lotus Flower” has Thom Yorke coming out as a charmingly huge tool.

For Fans Of: UNKLE, Massive Attack x Doves, Internet sensations.

Lykke Li

Wounded Rhymes

(Atlantic)

Sounds Like: The Swede goes darker and sadder on her sophomore effort. No more goofy dance times to accompany that Norwegian pessimism, just brooding anguish.

Free Association: No “Little Bit” or “Let It Fall”? Is it that bad over there? We have California!

For Fans Of: Dusty Springfield x Feist + Imogen Heap, cheering up girls.

Memphis

Here Comes A City

(Arts & Crafts)
